I’ve been so delighted to see how many authors are using this quarantine time to host virtual storytime.
There’s nothing quite as fun as hearing an author read their own book or tell some of the behind-the-scenes work that went into creating it, plus if you’re looking for a little activity that will keep your child engaged without rotting their brains, this is a good option!
Some of them who are illustrators are also doing virtual art or doodle lessons. Amazing!
I’ll keep adding to this list as I hear of more.
Authors Doing Virtual Storytime
He’s also reading one of his books every day on IG Live (so catch them before they expire!) starting today and going until it’s safe to go out again.
